INSIDE UCI: How to Unboil Eggs

How to Unboil Eggs

UCI researchers have officially earned the title “eggheads” after developing a way to unboil eggs. Professor Gregory Weiss and his team used a device to pull apart tangled proteins and allowing them to refold. The device gives scientists access to tangled proteins, which means potentially reduced costs for cancer research and treatment, food production, and the biotechnology industry. Professor Weiss will also share his academic journey, triumphs and pitfalls and a few “aha” moments. We encourage you to take time to attend this “egg-cellent” INSIDE UCI event!


This is an “INSIDE UCI” event. An RSVP is REQUIRED on EEE; directions to sign up will be sent to students by e-mail.
